I think I am going to just keep the vent where it is and see if there are any off odors over time. If so, I'll just vent it out the back of the house. Most people that I have talked to feel that there will be very little odor in this application.....so we'll see.

I got the main horizontal log trim fastened across the front of the vent hood......what a b*tch that was. After I ripped down the log, it had a hell of a warp to it. I used clamps to draw it down flush to the front of the hood and then used 3" course thread deck screws to fasten it. I think I am going to attach the side log trim pieces next and then either keep the front log overhanging beyond the side pieces or try to do an outside miter with my circular saw like I did with my lager chamber. It's next to impossible to a traditional mitered corner with the inconsistencies in the log surfaces.

Finished up the side log trims for the ventilation hood today. I decided to just slightly overhang the front log beyond the side trims and forget about trying to miter the corners. Although it's not perfect, I can live with how it looks. Now I just need to finish sand the entire hood, purchase the vortex exhaust fan, and run the vent out of the back of the house. Electrical is already complete with an outlet up high wired to a switch over the ale chamber. The switch will turn on the vent. fan and the LED lights that I installed. Next projects.......prime the walls, finish trim, paint, and keg polishing. Almost there.

Looks great!

What did you decide for the wall color?

Thanks. Still haven't decided on the wall color. At first I was thinking a deep red wine color to match the knots in the red cedar logs. Then I was thinking about an earthy clay color to coordinate with the brown tones in the stone tile. Others have suggested neutral and light, as to not take the attention away from the components I built. At this point I'm still undecided. I have a neighbor that is an interior designer, so I will try to get her opinion as well. I'm open to further suggestions.

I live in a pretty cool neighborhood with a great mix of professions. We are a pretty tight knit bunch and have a lot of fun. When someone in the hood needs help with something, for the most part, we have it covered. With my immediate neighbors at my end of the street there's a mechanical engineer, an electrical engineer, an IT specialist, a Nurse Practioner, a self employed commericial electrician, a self employed commercial plumbing contractor, an interior designer, a physical therapist (me), etc., etc. I couldn't live in a neighborhood full of anti-social pricks.

Thanks man.....my 10 y/o son is a Harry Potter freak, so I'll let him know that his old man has finally acheived "wizardry" status.

Not a ton of progress on the brewing room itself, but I finally finished most of the plumbing for eHERMs system. You can click on the eHERMs to check out that build if interested. I plan on priming the walls tomorrow and painting over the weekend. Next week I would love to have all of the finish trim done, so I can move onto flooring as my final project.
